Description Technical Specs
2008 Grenache Santa Barbara County | 600 cases produced.
85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. 100% of the fruit comes from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard grown at 3000 feet. 24 months in neutral barrels and bottled without fining or filtration.

Huge nose of juicy red fruits and grilled meat. On the palate the wine is loaded with lush red and blue fruits, brown spices and nice concentration. A crowd pleasing wine at a great value that you won't find everywhere. This is a follow-up to our hugely popular 2007 Grenache. If you ask me i"ll say it's better, but you be the judge.

Critics Review
Rhone Report: Tasted out of barrel, the 2008 Core Grenache looks to be outstanding. While slightly closed on the nose, showing dense cherry and spice notes, the wine possesses a fantastic palate with beautiful fruit, a thick, rich mid-palate, and a very focused, structured finish. It will be interesting to see how this shows from bottle, but my guess is that it will benefit from 1 to 3 years of bottle age and then drink well for a decade. 90-93 points.
